a murdered ambassador. chris stevens sounded the alarms before he and three other americans were killed in the deadly consulate attack in benghazi. republican leaders in the house have released dozens of documents in the investigation. 166 pages, e-mails and cables between the state department and people in the field. those house leaders say it shows that the obama administration ignored security problems. but obama administration officials say the documents don't tell the whole story. so let's bring in our intelligence correspondent suzanne kelly, who has been going through all of this. what new details are you finding in the cables and the e-mails? >> reporter: the cables certainly give us more detail into the thinking of ambassador stevens in the months, weeks and even hours before his death. for example, we know that just hours before the attack that killed him and three other americans, he expressed concern over the rising security threats in benghazi and in nearby town where is the ambassador believed that islamic extremists were gaining a strong foothold. he was also worried that
by steven dennis, who covers the white house for roll call newspaper and josh rogin, a staff writer with foreign policy magazine and the author of the cable blog. how did we get to this path? the president said it was really congress that did this and some people said no the white house had a role. how did we get to this. >> a lot of folks were shaking their heads wondering what he was saying because the reality is the president was involved. he helped craft this deal. this sequestration is really a symptom of washington's failure to get a budget deal. for 18 months the two sides have been squaring off and the the democrats are off in their corner saying we need to raise taxes on the wealthy. the republicans are saying we have to have a cuts-only plan. when they cut this deal a year-and-a-half ago, it was designed to bring the two parties together, to make it so onerous that both sides had to come... >> ifill: nobody thought it would ever be real. >> yeah. i think that basically the idea was the super committee was going to take a crack at coming up with an alternative. they failed.
details what happened that night. at 8:30, ambassador chris stevens went outside the compound to say good night to a visiting turkish diplomat. the streets were empty. but at 9:40 p.m., security agents in the operations center of the compound heard explosions and saw a large group of armed men entering the compound. stevens, sean smith and one security agent locked themselves in the safe area. they saw attackers hunting for them. pouring diesel and, setting the house on fire. the three americans went to a bathroom area where they tried to open a small window for air. but it was not enough. on the ground suffering from severe smoke inhalation they decided to flee. stevens and smith never made it out alive. diane sawyer asked the president about the white house's initial claims that the incident began with a protest against that anti-muslim video. >> as information came in, information was put out. the information may not have always been right the first time. look, look, diane, these are people i know. and if there is something to be fixed, it will get fixed. >> reporter: the commander of

(boos) i have to do this. i have to do this. we haven't spoken but i trust my balls will also be stepping down. or at least descending. there it is. and though i will no longer be chairman, i will be staying on the board which has no other members but me. so i am proud to announce that starting today i will be serving as interim chairman of the wristrong foundation.

people fired shots. explosions were heard as well. ambassador stevens in benghazi, personnel in the compound safe haven. this went to the f.b.i. this went to director of national intelligence and this went to the state department. most disturbing of all of them, it went to the situation room. so all levels of government. all levels of the white house had at least some knowledge of what was going on there. >> greg: but who really reads their e-mails at work? >> kimberly: clearly you don't. >> greg: someone might have been at lunch. you get so many e-mails and could have gone in the spam file. ridiculous. >> kimberly: is that what they'll say next? >> greg: probably. obama prides themselves on leading from behind but they're lying from behind. the big story here is the administration put p.c. before safety. the language they kept strongest was about the video not the attack. they had a fear of being perceived as islamicophobia. the tolerance language excuses this evil. it's nuts. they still haven't, they still haven't said who pushed the video. >> bob: horrible. >> greg: it is.

his death and the death of ambassador stephens and -- stevens and others? to put that failure in context, after the first 9/11, the bush administration organized the full scale of invasion of afghanistan in just over three weeks. it's taken obama three weeks to send fbi agents to benghazi. so we're sending a signal of weakness and paralysis, and as we learned on september 11th 2001 and 2012, weakness is provocative. megyn: julie, pat smith's grief is real, but i don't want to make this all about her n. the same way brian terry's family grieves for him in the fast and furious operation, but that story's not entirely about him. it's about our government and its decisions and its honesty and transparency with the american people. and, you know, having witnessed those hearings yesterday, do you think that there are legitimate questions still out there about whether there was adequate security, whether they responded to the demands being made for more security on the ground at our consulate in benghazi and whether this administration has been transparent and open and truthful with
chris stevens cited as the highlight of his time in the country. achieving genuine democracy and broad-based growth will be a long and difficult process. we know that from our own history. more than 235 years after our own revolution, we are still working toward that more perfect union. so one should expect setbacks along the way, times when some will surely ask if it was all worth it. but going back to the way things were in december 2010 isn't just undesirable, it is impossible. so this is the context in which we have to view recent events and shape our approach going forward. and let me explain where that leads us. now, since this is a conference on the maghreb, that's where i'll focus. because, after all, that's where the arab revolution started and where an international coalition helped stop a dictator from slaughtering his people and where just last month we saw such disturbing violence. but let's look at what's actually happening on the ground. especially in light of recent events. we have to, as always, be clear-eyed about the threat of violent extremism. a year of democratic

from chris stevens was his concern about security at the consulate. i don't expect the president to know when 16 people are moved in or out or something like that. but i certainly expect him to know in his daily intelligence brief that things were deteriorating in benghazi to a terrible degree. and then, of course, when it happened, we saw all this business of spontaneous demonstrations, which anyone with any knowledge knew -- by the way, the cia station chief in benghazi's first message back was that this was a terrorist attack and we all knew and they knew that there was an al qaeda-affiliated organization there. this is really an unacceptable screw-up and obviously the president should have known better. >> let's talk about the debate tonight because you're unique in this regard. you've debated both mitt romney when he was seeking the republican nomination, you won. you debated the president when you were the republican nominee. he won that. i'm going to play a couple of clips of you debating both of these individuals four years ago. >> my hero is a guy named tedly roosevelt.
dead, including ambassador chris stevens. the episode has itself become politically charged with election day less than a month off. republican committee chair darrell issa opened with this salvo. >> today it is 30 days since the september 11th attack, more or less. it is a long time to wait if you're sitting in cairo, in algeria, in beirut, damascus, and you don't trust that the security measures you need have occurred. today, we begin the process of saying they must be able to trust because you must be able to assure them that you're doing your work differently than just a short time ago. >> reporter: last week, issa and utah congressman jason chaffetz wrote to secretary of state hillary clinton, alleging the department had denied requests for beefed-up security at benghazi. chaffetz expanded on the charge today. >> i believe, personally, with more assets, more resources, just meeting the minimum standards we could of and should of saved the life of ambassador stevens and the other people that were there. any reasonable person looking at the security situation in libya had
is one stock to avoid. thank you for joining us. steven, let me kick this off with you. you say price increases are going to continue and we'll see even more in 2013. who has been the hardest hit and where do you want to avoid? >> where we see the hardest hit is companies that have higher exposure to some of the land-based proteins. primarily in beef and pork. less effeaffected are names wit higher exposure to seafood and coffee. one name to avoid, as you mentioned, bob evans, has about 33% of its total food costs in sows, the heavy pigs that are used for some of the pork products. that's not priced -- not on a contract basis. that's one reason we would hold off on this stock right now. >> why do i want to be avoiding those companies that are raising prices? wouldn't that be a positive? i know thatmers ultimately gets hit but if they're raising prices, what does that do for margins? >> margins can be helped by raising prices. the question is, how much of these items can be entered into contracts? that's why we like some of the companies that have bigger supply chains, like darden and
